I have been diagnosed with endometriosis and now I have sever rectal pain in my mid cycle. Are they related? Can endometriosis cause rectal pain as well? What is the solution?
Endometriosis: Hi, yes that's very well possible, in patients with Endometriosis due to inflammatory mediators like Prostaglandins the contractility of the bowel can be increased and that can cause rectal spasm and abdominal pain, treating endometriosis with birth control pill should help with these symptoms. Good luck.
I have recently been diagonized with two fibroids 6 cm and 4 cm. I was told that this is the cause for a rectal pain that I have been suffering from for the past few months. Is there anything (apart from tablets) that can relieve the rectal pain?
Removal of fibroids: If the hypothesis that the fibroids cause the pain, because they are located on the posterior wall of the uterus, the only way to relieve the pain would be by removing the fibroids.See 1 more doctor answer
PROSTATITIS EVAL: R/O prostatitis v Epididymitis tough to treat. Hopefully you have seen a urologist recently. Tx with doxycycline. I would recheck labs /UA C&S. & testosterone if no response, cipro (ciprofloxacin) may be needed for 8-10wks. Recheck labs and culture. You also need abdominal/pelvic/prostate US R/O prostate stones. Also switch to gluten free diet Wholeapproach. Com gutbliss. Com Cipro (ciprofloxacin) may also be tried if no change.
Can p.O.P, or enterocele cause rectal pain to be worse and more constant during menstrual cycle? If pertinent, in add. Uterus is also retroverted.
Maybe.: Usually, pop and enteroceles are painless, but if you have a rectocele and tend towards constipation or harder stools at that time of the month, then there may be more pressure in your pelvis/rectum causing pain. The retroverted uterus is also pushing on the rectum and is lower in your pelvis (pop) which may make stool transit more difficult. What does you doctor think? Have you tried a pessary?
Anal Fissure common: From this limited detail, I suspect anal fissure. This is the most common cause for this combination of problems, however it is worthwhile to see your colorectal surgeon to make sure it isn't something worse. Start a high fiber and water diet. Use warm water baths. Surgery is curative if conservative measures fail.
